We activated captcha for our "register" for an account after it was being spammed.
That worked for about 2 months. The bots appear to have got around this as we are now being flooded with automated registrations again.
Is there a fix for this?
Thank you for any help!

Re spam: Well personally I would use the capabilities of the big internet corporation and enforce their removal by law - but as yet the powers that be just can’t seem to get a grasp on how dangerous the internet actually is - so as it stands - no matter what you do eventually these people find a way around it.
The problem is that what ever is used is “general” i.e. easy to get around - get around one - and they post it online - have competitions - do it for fun - want to become government operatives - the list is endless ..
So here is your solution - these are recommended developers :

https://www.opencart.com/index.php?rout ... n_id=37705
Be aware of which pages each works on ..
and here you can try to find one yourself

If you search google for opencart forum stop spam you will get a few solutions with ips, but I do not recommend that method.
You should not modify core files .. if you would like to donate a cup of coffee I will write it in a modification for you.
